Due Diligence

A critical project component, Masterplan provides due diligence services for each and every client we serve. This research investigates the existing rights and conditions of a tract of land. Information yielded includes existing zoning, infrastructure availability, surrounding uses and zoning, and investigation of existing structures on-site. Finally, our team is experienced at weighing the likelihood of success, establishing a timeline, and setting an appropriate budget.

Masterplan believes that giving clients a clear indicator that the project cannot be done upfront is valuable. We share our professional opinion, even when the news isn’t favorable news.  We will tell you: how long it will take, how likely success will be, and how much it will cost.


  • Receive full disclosure of the facts and conditions of a potential asset prior to completing a transaction with the seller. 
  • Allows you to make informed decisions. 
  • We bring a process that moves quickly after going into contract. Having a strategy and plan saves you time, energy and money.
